I don't want to go off topic, but just wanted to say that if you have only been collecting for three years, that doesn't matter. The fact that you are a collector, and DO know a lot, and are willing to comment and post means that I at least, as I am sure others do, value your input .
I too like the cap, and would be happy to own it, back on topic
It never hurts to post anything on here for opinions, that's how we all learn. I too like the cap. And a reasonable priced item too.
Glad to know some dealers are not "upping" their prices too much
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
Here are a few pictures of the Hj cap i picked up yesterday. They are not much different from the original photo's that the seller posted but maybe the label will come out clearer. The cap is in very good condition and i am pleased with the purchase.
The seller did not have much but what really interested me was that along with the cap for sale he had an unissued Hj shirt never unfolded with the packing pins still in place and all the paper labels attached as well. I do not collect much Hj items but i could not pass on the cap. it will go well with my dagger but i'm looking for an armband to make this a grouping so if anyone has one for sale please p.m. me
Has it been cleaned or washed?? Hope not
Good original HJ Sommermutze, the enamel diamond looks good also. An armband and maybe some HJ straps would go good in a display with an HJ knife. Post a picture when you get it all together.
i like it
i have the same in me collection
No, it has not been washed. It still has the old musty odor and there is very light dirt soiling that will stay on the cap for the rest of it's days.
The flash probably made it look like it came out of mommas laundry. Real nice but im no expert.
